Play: Mess We Can, Aug 3-5 2012 @ Kenya National Theatre
In this Play, Honourable Martin Mwangi is in the most dreaded period of an MP’s life- the year just before the ELECTIONS. The journey has been hard and as expected the power too sweet to let go. He engages crooks to make sure that his rivals are kept literally toothless and under control as he goes for another term.
In his quest to amass wealth and more power, the Honourable MP comes face to face with the worst of fears- his world is falling apart and he’s lost control… of EVERYTHING!!! With a spoilt and overly promiscuous daughter, a wayward son who is a drunkard and hates literally everything… well almost everything, except the beer bottle, and a house maid who is in charge of all his household,he soon discovers that even his most trusted Chief Campaigner is upto something. Something good? Something nasty?
The unfolding drama reveals a past that has come back to haunt him…. a past that proved that indeed, mess, we can.
